Orient-Express Train Packs In Hotel Stays

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

In a continued response to the realities of the post-2008 economy, Orient-Express is adding a night’s stay at some of the world’s most legendary hotels as part of its 2009 train journeys in continental Europe, Scotland and Southeast Asia.

“Inviting our passengers to stay as our guests at hotels such as the Cipriani in Venice, the Balmoral in Edinburgh and the Oriental in Bangkok is a valuable and alluring perk,” says Alistair Ballantine, Director of Sales and Marketing, the Americas, “and it’s an immensely appealing add-on to an epic train journey.”

Travelers who book 3-, 4-, 5- and 7-night journeys on the Royal Scotsman will benefit from discounts of as much as 34% off the originally published rates and get to spend a complimentary night at Edinburgh’s renowned Balmoral Hotel. For the European and Scottish trains, reservations must be made prior to March 31.

Travelers who book the classic Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train from London or Paris to Venice, or vice-versa, will receive a complimentary night at Venice’s celebrated Hotel Cipriani, considered the city’s most luxurious and glamorous hotel.

In Southeast Asia, travelers on the Eastern & Oriental Express from Bangkok to Singapore, or vice-versa, from April 16 through September 24 will get to stay as many as three nights at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in either Bangkok or Singapore.
